It's Not Mine

managing what we have to love God and others


Stewardship is just a churchy word for “let’s talk about money,” right? Not exactly. The essence of biblical stewardship is managing everything God brings into a believer’s life in a manner that honors God and impacts eternity.  


Psalm 24:1 says, “The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.”

Just as God placed Adam in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it (Genesis 2;15), God has also given us life and put us in an environment with gifts and resources to manage its care.  


What does good stewardship mean in our day-to-day lives? It does mean managing our money well and giving our tithes and offerings, but it also means managing our other resources well. For instance, we can use our bodies to physically serve God and others or invite people into our homes to build relationships and share the love of Jesus. 


We can use our vehicles to deliver food, give someone a ride, and bring people to church. All of this takes time - another resource to manage to God’s glory. Our time isn’t just about the activities in our schedule; it’s about honoring God, living purposefully, and loving others well.
